The Super-20 League, the longest standing and most sophisticated U20 men’s North American amateur league, will feature 44 teams divided among seven geographic divisions in 2014. The longest standing and most sophisticated U20 men’s North American amateur league, the Super-20 League was founded in 2006 and serves elite players from ages 17-20 as they advance beyond the youth level to the senior professional and amateur development leagues.
The league was designed to cater to the top of the youth ranks in the U.S. and Canada for players aspiring to play professionally. It also serves as a reserve division for PDL teams, which are able to add Super-20 teams to expand their development goals as well as their player pool for the senior team.
The Super-20 League features reserve squads for 12 PDL clubs in 2014 as well as teams affiliated with USL PRO’s Harrisburg City Islanders and the Chicago Fire of MLS.
The 2014 MLS SuperDraft saw six former PDL players selected in the top 10, and 25 former PDL and Super-20 League alumni selected overall.
